I have today decided to offer my stalking in Berkshire to somebody else as it is too far away for me .
So what is on offer
2x farms and a number of smaller pieces and a few contacts of places that I have had and no longer have ( but still have details ).
What species: I have shot Roe and Muntjac very regularly and the odd Fallow. Both farms have produced Gold medals as I make a point of not overshooting them.
SD members that can verify that my land does hold deer are Williegunn, Plonker, Caz and quite a few Danish people (but they're not on SD).
So what is the deal?
I will sign over all of my land to you. All of the land are non-paid for permissions. Most of the land I have signed dates from 1997, and 98. So I have been on it for a very long time and know it very well.
I will introduce you to the landowners and make sure that they are all happy with you to continue. What you do and where you take it is up to you. I had this land for 19 years, you loose it in 1 that's up to you.
What do you need to do?
You must have an open certificate. Some of the smaller bits are literally gardens. OK, gardens of some very large houses but they still get deer problems.
What's it going to cost?
Well I've thought hard about this one. Finding stalking in the south is hard enough and a lot of leg work went in to getting this ground even in the 90's. Given I have had the ground for this length of time and I can get you in AND you never need to pay a penny again then I think a reasonable payment of £4000 is about right.
Now for those of you that say "bloody hell" £4000 in to 19 years is £210/year. Given that most leases will cost you upwards of £700/year to be in a syndicate I think it's about right. Don't forget this is just you. No other members. When you pay the money that's it, I will walk away ( well drive really because I now live in Herefordshire, which is why it is too far to visit regularly). You will never see me again, unless you want to invite me.
I'm going up in late April. If you want to come it'll cost you normal stalking fees which if you decide to take the land on will be deducted from the total.
ADMIN note: Can you let me know if you require any trade payment for this?
